Where does the good go

To the good people responsible for sign making in the greater Oakland area, in the interest of motorist safety, if a certain entrance ramp leads both to 880 East and 880 West, it’s probably a good idea for the sign marker on that ramp to simply read “880” rather than “880 West” causing a motorist looking for 880 East to almost make a U-turn on the single lane ramp and get him or herself killed by oncoming traffic.

That is all.

    Hey there,
    I read your post all the time. What are you doing on the West Coast??

    I live in SF. If you are around a while I will take you to the good spots to hang out. You can come in your Outback, but we’ll leave it a good distance from the cool places.

    Heaven forbid we are seen in anything less than a BMW. In that case we can take my car.

    Don’t be scared btw, I am a single 32 girl in real estate here in SF. I am not a stalker. I’m just a chill gal who has lived here for years; I’d be happy to show you around. You can check out my blog to confirm I’m on the sane side.

    Cheers, and if I don’t see you, have a good time here in the rain we are having.

    Oh, I have a feeling Ms. Summers will get in touch.

    This is California, Karol. Being seen in a crappy car in CA is a little like . . . hmm, how can I anologize so East Coasters will understand . . .? Oh, I know, like being caught out without your Ivy League degree. It just shows you have no respect for yourself.

    You’re so new money that you felt you had to explain that. 😛

    AW MAN!! I get stuck in a minivan for three days and then I only find out about an invite to see the sites in San Fran in a BEAMER, two hours after I get back to New York. Waaaaa. Gertie I will so be taking you up on your offer the next time I’m in the bay area!

    I’m hurt. You saw the sight(s) of Palo Alto in an RX-8! Seriously, out here BMWs are as common and uninteresting as . . . well . . . Accords.

    Awww, you know how important the RX-8 is to me. The Beamer doesn’t mean anything , it’s the RX-8 I really love. :)
